Northamptonshire ACRE Oil Buying Scheme

The Northamptonshire ACRE Bulk Oil Buying Scheme was launched in October 2011. Since then the number of members has reached just over 200, and is steadily growing. During this time, over 2300 orders have been processed and over 1.7 million litres of domestic heating oil have been delivered. Our members have saved a total of over £198,000 so far against the highest prices quoted and just over £80,500 against the average prices quoted.

Northamptonshire ACRE is a non-profit making charity that has been successfully working for the rural community of Northamptonshire since 1946. We want to help households, businesses and community buildings throughout Northamptonshire to benefit from the power of bulk buying. Even though oil prices have dropped considerably in the last few months, this scheme will save you even more money.

It’s a simple process. Once you have registered you can order and pay for your oil online. We will still be ordering oil once a month and delivery should be within about 2 weeks of the order date.

Northamptonshire ACRE works with eSmartMetrics Ltd (trading as Olive). Olive operates the website, handles payments and works with the oil companies to ensure Northamptonshire ACRE members get a good price on oil orders. For further information about how eSmartMetrcs Ltd collects, retains and shares your personal data please refer to eSmartMetrics Ltd’s Privacy Policy which is available to view via the link at the foot of this page.
